MxAPS works with your existing ERP system to generate realistic plans for manufacturing your product in the most efficient manner possible. However, the benefits don’t end at the shop floor: efficient production combined with enhanced visibility into the manufacturing process affects almost every other area of your business.
Traditional methods of planning and scheduling are error-prone, time-consuming, and non-responsive, resulting in schedules that do not accurately reflect the actual capabilities of the shop floor. Your ability to schedule production responsively is further impaired when you factor in production realities, late delivery of critical raw material and components, equipment breakdowns, changes to sales forecasts, and customer demands.
MxAPS allows you to quote realistic delivery dates, and stick to them. If problems should arise during production, sales managers can respond proactively instead of being surprised by unhappy customers.
MxAPS drives earlier delivery dates that ensure happy and loyal customers.
Reduce the cost of equipment downtime by using MxAPS to plan maintenance and cleaning when it will be least disruptive to production.
Automatically keep track of actual machine hours between preventative maintenance procedures to ensure equipment stays operational.
MxAPS automatically reallocates production to other areas should a machine go down.
Run a leaner operation to reduce production costs, improve throughput, and better manage all resources and production assets.
MxAPS also helps you improve capacity utilization, reduce downtime, and reduce inventory levels. All these improvements add up to improved production efficiency, which ultimately makes you far more profitable than without MxAPS.
Reduce staffing costs with detailed labor plans based on skill sets. MxAPS helps your HR department plan hiring campaigns, temporary worker allocations, and overtime strategies without over-hiring or being caught short-handed.
Scheduled vacations retrieved from HR systems are accounted for in production plans, ensuring that there are no labor shortages or surprises.
